themselves out normally if not right and the idea of groupthink with the eisenhower years will provide the leadership but their ideal obama gives eloquent speeches he doesn't have the follow through that is vital. he also hinted at something that i found very discouraging he was imploring the young people in jerusalem to call for peace which is fine but he also had a line that is extraordinary that jfk would never have bettered. he said, unable in paraphrasing, don't expect an elected official like me to do this unless we're pushed to do it from people like you. that is the modern political view. politics has become tremendously professionalized and package. among the most damaging people on the civilian side are political advisers i dislike the profession. there many nice people but the profession is terrible because leadership does not focus groups it is not the polls or refined followership to track is a you know, increasing tom decoders you will get off but that is what politics are right now. i have seen it close up and nobody takes risks and if you are not courageous the world w

to be embattled as a conservative, a very right-wing guy that lives and works in new york city. i used to live here in union square in new york, which was the epicenter of obama mania. i was up late doing commentary in 2008 at two or three in the morning. i went back home and i was irritable and here at union square. people were chanting and singing and randomly high-fiving people, little do they know that whenever i encounter these kind of liberal youths, i am reminded of a reagan story when he was governor here in california. when i spontaneously broke out and he was at a meeting of the board of trustees and while he was there, a demonstration started at the front of the building. and a staff member wanted to sneak out the back. and i said no, i'm going to go through the back or he gets in his car. they are kind of scruffy and hippie looking, hippie types. and they were chanting that we are the future. the story goes that in that case i'm going to sell my bonds. [laughter] so i have written this post on lincoln which has been out about a week. i have had some interesting experiences with it.
and for the people to really be heard in 2008, president obama won the the south, and who have been fighting this very aggressive, far right wing attack on rights in the state that have come to a head over the last couple of years. they have been visible and inspiring in showing what we can do when we come together, one for all and all for one. at the same time, we've seen big victories on voting rights in states just north. some of them below the mason- dixon line. a couple of weeks ago, governor bob mcdonnell took the last of the jim crow voter suppression, the lifetime ban of formerly incarcerated people voting.

's the critical question at the end of the day. >> michael: and that's the critical question for president obama. how much of this vote is motivated by personal careers, and how much is motivated by actually seeking progress. >> i believe if they do the politicalpolitical calculous right, they would find voices. there are some of the most anti-immigrant voices in the nation can be heard in the house of representatives and unfortunately in the republican party, but i believe they are the minority of voices. i believe if speaker boehner permits the democrats which overwhelmingly support immigration reform, and to the extent that there is a block of republicans if given their opportunity to vote, there would be more than enough votes to pass the senate bill or any similar version. the question is are we going to unshackle the opportunity to positively affect the economy of the country grow the country's gross domestic product create jobs increase prosperity, and take those dreamers to help fuel our competitiveness globally. greater security in our country and at the same time preserve our history t

say he would made the right moves on afghanistan in this time in office. >> i think it's a big selling point for president obama to leave office to say i ended the war in iraq and afghanistan. those are big accomplishments by any measure at least looking at it that way. the question is whether or not you leave behind a cub tree that falls apart, that becomes a problem all over again that requires americans to return in some fashion or another. it's not as easy as simply saying, okay, we're coming home at the end of 2014. you have to be careful that what you leave behind is is something that can stand on its own. that's the open question. >> andrea mitchell and peter baker, thanks to you both for joining us. >> thanks for having us. my pleasure. we'll be back in just a minute. edward sphoa snowden the former n.s.a. contractor remains in limbo. he's believed to be in the transit area of the moscow airport. so far three latin american countries have offered him asylum: venezuela, nicaragua and bow live i can't remember i can't. the debates over his actions and the n.s.a.'s surveillance pr
. president obama's plan is a step in the right direction. and i'm encouraged that e.p.a.'s moving quickly on meaningful standards for power plants. strong power plant standards are an imperative if we're going to avert the worst impacts of climate change. we've got a lot of work to do, mr. speaker, and it's time to get this house headed in the right direction on climate policy. mr. huffman: i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from montana seek recognition? without objection, the gentleman from montana is recognized. mr. daines: mr. speaker, i rise today to honor dustin ded for, a 24-year-old montana native who was monday among the 19 hot shot firefighters who recently died while battling a wildfire in arizona. the son of reverend steve and up te deford, dustin grew in the smalltown in montana where he was well known for his joyful spirit, as well as his deep faith in christ. dustin also had a passion for community service at an early age. in fact, he volunteered for the carter county fire department as soon as he turned 18 and continued working as a
, ronald reagan had a 59% approval rating as he was nearing t inin his eight years. president obama is in the mid 40s right now and you look at macro political condition in the country, it's hard to see how that mid 40s number has upward pressure as opposed to downward pressure exerted on it. >> joe? >> and gene robinson, also, i don't want to sound like jon meacham here, but before george h.w. bush followed ronald reagan the last time that happened was when martin van burren got elected. so it's not easy for the same party to continue and to stay in office, but it may happen here. but there are, though, it's not going to be a coronation. the economy is going to continue, economists say, to stagger along. we're not going to have morning in america three years from now. >> well, and, you know, the truth is, we don't really know, joe. i mean it is -- it's certainly early to tell where the economy is going to be and it's way early to tell who the republican party is going to run for president and what sort of shape both parties are going to be in then, whether there are deep divisions
. >> that's right. the u.s. is furious for what they say russia giving mr. snowden what they call a propaganda platform. heavy criticism yesterday from the white house and the state department and president obama got on the phone to call president putin. russia has said they were neutral, they couldn't help him in this transit area. officials are telling me by allowing him to have this press conference, to meet with human rights activists, they're almost in effect treating him as if he almost has asylum already. so what the u.s. is really urging, they hope russia still has a chance to do the right thing, send him back to the united states, but president putin is in a bit of a box now because he is not -- he's in a lose/lose situation. on one hand domestically he needs to show he's the strong man not bowing to the united states and caving to the pressure. at the same time he wants to preserve his relationship with president obama. the two leaders are supposed to have a summit in september. officials tell me that's on hold while this whole matter is resolved. so right now there's a
larry summers may land that job after months of lobbying president obama. summers is flash point for many off and on wall street. ed butchy, former speechwriter for larry summers, said he would be an excellent choice. he joins us right few for geneva. jim does not agree. good to see you both. so jim, let me kick it off with you. what do you think the market reaction would be if larry summers got the fed chairmanship? >> i think if president obama wants a market rattling circus after confirmation hearing, then by all means he should pick larry summers. i think that is a theory he would be easily confirmable. because of his intellect. because of his time in the clinton administration. i think republicans would use this to put obamaites on trouble. and for housing bubble. and i'm not sure if he is confirmable and if he is, he is a weakened fed chairman when i think you need a strong fed chairman. >> ed, what about you? what's your take? >> i disagree with jim on that. i think if there is any problem for larry summers in terms of confirmation it would be from the left by people like

that snowden is by no means a human rights activist. no word on whether president obama expressed any of that in his conversation with vladimir putin. but the white house says it remains hopeful it will not damage u.s. and russian relations. >>> meantime, out of texas for you this morning the texas state senate has just approved one of the strictest anti-borges measures in the entire country. this bill bans abortions after 20 weeks. it requires clinics to perform abortions, meet the same arounds as emergency clinics. that matters because that could mean most abortion clinics in texas don't meet that standard and can close. it has a strong backing from republican governor rick perry. a version of this bill died after an 11-hour filibuster by senator wendy davis. and passing on friday, texas say handful of conservative states that has enacted similar laws. >>> a third person has now died as a result of the asiana airlines crash. a hospital official in san francisco said a girl is dieing from her injuries. no details about her. but police are now saying one of the other two teenagers who
